Despite opening the scoring just two minutes after the first whistle, United U23s suffered their fifth successive defeat in all competitions on Friday.

In blazing sunshine at Fulham's Motspur Park training ground, Magpies striker Dylan Stephenson quickly netted his sixth goal in as many PL2 games this season.

The hosts made and missed several chances to equalise before the interval; Newcastle's best chance of extending their lead saw Jack Young fire wide.

Finnsh striker Terry Ablade seized on a poor back pass to level on 53 minutes before Jay Stansfield put Fulham ahead midway through the second half with an unstoppable shot.

Cottagers Captain Connor McAvoy then headed Sonny Hilton's corner kick past Max Thompson on 72 minutes to confirm the destination of the points.

Kevin Richardson again took charge of the side while the search for a full-time coach continues, with ex-Magpie Shefki Kuqi among the spectators present and rumoured to have applied for the post.
